Jena: No, I did not start Akarna Dhanura Asana. It is an old yoga pose and probably has been around from the time ancient Indian’s practiced yoga over 5000 years ago. I am not really sure about the history of the pose, but here is a link which explains the history of yoga, hope that helps.
It might be popular because when you really focus your energy into the pose, you almost feel like an archer using the body as a bow.
My real name is not Karmadude, but you can say that’s how I am known on the web!

Asanas have another responsibility and importance from the point of view of physical health.
“The organs of the human body are made up of tissues. This is the reason why the health of human body depends on the health of tissues. According to physiology, there are three conditions of health of the different tissues of the human body. These are:-
i) Constant supply of proper nourishment and of the internal secretions of the endocrine glands,
ii) Effective removal of waste products; and
iii) Healthy functioning of the nerve-connections. Cultural poses are fully capable of fulfilling these conditions.”
The practice of Yoga Exercises or Yoga Asanas can improve your health, increase your resistance, and develop your mental awareness.
